WEST MICHIGAN — WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: The warmth from today won’t last long as cold air starts to invade the region later this evening and overnight into Wednesday transitioning our light rainfall to a brief wintry mix before changing to all snow overnight. We're tracking a storm system for Wednesday and Thursday, bringing snowfall to the region. The latest forecast models show this system producing the heaviest snow along/south of the I-94 corridor and over southeast lower Michigan. Locations like Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, and Jackson can see amounts of 6-10+ inches. Difficult travel conditions are expected with this system. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES have been posted from 2 A.M. Wednesday through 11 P.M. Thursday for Allegan, Barry, Ottawa, Kent, and Ionia Counties. WINTER STORM WARNINGS have been issued for Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, Eaton, Berrien, Cass, St. Joseph, and Branch Counties from 2 A.M. Wednesday through 11 P.M. Thursday. This storm wraps up Thursday and we should be mainly dry on Friday, but bitter cold. Bundle up and drive safe!

TONIGHT: Cloudy with rain transitioning to snow showers. Possible brief window of freezing rain/wintry mix. One to two inch accumulations possible overnight especially south of I-96. Lows in the mid to upper 20s. Winds southwest/northwest at 10 to 15 mph.
